The project



Critically acclaimed French police drama Spiral follows the lives and careers of Parisian police officers, lawyers and judges who work at the Palais de Justice. Based around the investigations of Chief Inspector Berthaud, the show shines a spotlight on the most grisly and corrupt aspects of 21st century police work.

Spiral gained a loyal cult following, and its initial success helped pave the way for further foreign language dramas to be aired on the channel, including Bafta-winning shows Borgen and The Killing, both of which VSI also subtitled.


VSI London was pleased to once again be providing the subtitles for the fifth season of Spiral.
